So much for the ‘educated’ with a huge student loan to pay back – LOL – no common sense.
National debate champions from top Ivy League institute lose to team from Eastern New York Correctional Facility
On one side of the stage were three of the brightest students from one of America’s top Ivy League universities.
Sitting just yards away for the high profile debate were not peers from Yale or Princeton, but three men convicted of violent crimes such as manslaughter who are currently incarcerated at the maximum security Eastern New York Correctional Facility.
It was a debating contest like no other – and despite arguing for a motion that they firmly disagreed with – the prisoners defied the odds and beat their Harvard opponents to cheers from the audience.
“They caught us off guard,” Anais Carell, a 20-year-old student told the Wall Street Journal, adding how impressed the Harvard students, who are the current national champions, had been by their opponents.
